*#293: 2010.07.18

*this edition of */framework:afield/* has been produced in the uk by 
*lee patterson*, and features recordings from his upcoming installation, 
at *stour valley arts* in kent, entitled /*elemental fields*/.  more 
about the work:

    Stour Valley Arts is delighted to present a new work by Lee
    Patterson resulting from his ongoing residency. Elemental Fields
    maps an often overlooked landscape in Kent to uncover its hidden
    sounds. Through ingenious field recordings, Lee Patterson explores
    the world around us, using it as an acoustic instrument to reveal
    how shifts in environments can impact our sonic experience.

    “Field recording, especially with contact microphones or
    hydrophones, can confound what one thinks to know of the world, and
    this remains one of my main motivations, to be able to venture out
    and discover something of bizarre beauty, something unexpected that
    astounds and remains inexplicable within an apparently mundane,
    commodified and tamed world.” Lee Patterson

    Lee Patterson is at the centre of a network of artists whose work
    occupies a space between galleries and concert halls. In recent
    years he has developed a growing reputation in the international
    arena as a sound artist and improviser. Using unconventional
    approaches, he has invented new methods for producing music from
    everyday objects and amplified devices, as well as original
    processes for live sound generation. A regular collaborator with
    artist Luke Fowler, Patterson’s work has been shown at Tate Modern’s
    Long Weekend, the Barbican’s Radical Nature and AV Festival 10 in
    Newcastle Gateshead. Recorded works have been released on various

    Since November last year, Patterson has been exploring and
    collecting material in King’s Wood and the Ashford flood plain,
    working closely with Stour Valley Arts and the Forestry Commission
    to identify areas of sonic and ecological interest. Through the use
    of contact microphones and hydrophones, he accesses the microscopic
    sound worlds of solid materials and underwater environments such as
    ponds, rivers, drainage ditches and moats. Patterson uses sound
    recording akin to a sketch book, providing the space for collection
    and artistic exploration. With these recordings Patterson creates
    work that provides sonic snapshots of specific landscape and reveals
    how these are continually in flux.

    In July, audiences will be able to experience these hidden worlds
    through a site specific sound installation which takes place in a
    found space in the middle of Ashford Town Centre but only minutes
    away from the flood plain. The installation will comprise a number
    of discrete rooms, each containing a soundscape composed of field
    recordings from two local sites: the flood plains surrounding
    Ashford and nearby King’s Wood in Challock, Kent.

    Patterson’s residency will culminate in 2011 with the launch of a
    physical work situated in King’s Wood. He aims to create a variety
    of sound making ‘tools’ through selective environmental
    interventions. One possibility is the creation of one or more ponds,
    which will be managed and stocked with specific sound producing
    organisms, as a way of composing underwater soundscapes and creating
    a rich ongoing sonic resource within the forest.
